Exodus 38:1-22

The Altar of Burnt Offering

1 Theya built the altar of burnt offering of acacia wood, three cubitsb high; it was square, five cubits long and five cubits wide.c
2 They made a horn at each of the four corners, so that the horns and the altar were of one piece, and they overlaid the altar with bronze.
3 They made all its utensils of bronze—its pots, shovels, sprinkling bowls, meat forks and firepans.
4 They made a grating for the altar, a bronze network, to be under its ledge, halfway up the altar.
5 They cast bronze rings to hold the poles for the four corners of the bronze grating.
6 They made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with bronze.
7 They inserted the poles into the rings so they would be on the sides of the altar for carrying it. They made it hollow, out of boards.

The Basin for Washing

8 They made the bronze basin and its bronze stand from the mirrors of the women who served at the entrance to the tent of meeting.

The Courtyard

9 Next they made the courtyard. The south side was a hundred cubitsd long and had curtains of finely twisted linen,
10 with twenty posts and twenty bronze bases, and with silver hooks and bands on the posts.
11 The north side was also a hundred cubits long and had twenty posts and twenty bronze bases, with silver hooks and bands on the posts.
12 The west end was fifty cubitse wide and had curtains, with ten posts and ten bases, with silver hooks and bands on the posts.
13 The east end, toward the sunrise, was also fifty cubits wide.
14 Curtains fifteen cubitsf long were on one side of the entrance, with three posts and three bases,
15 and curtains fifteen cubits long were on the other side of the entrance to the courtyard, with three posts and three bases.
16 All the curtains around the courtyard were of finely twisted linen.
17 The bases for the posts were bronze. The hooks and bands on the posts were silver, and their tops were overlaid with silver; so all the posts of the courtyard had silver bands.
18 The curtain for the entrance to the courtyard was made of blue, purple and scarlet yarn and finely twisted linen—the work of an embroiderer. It was twenty cubitsg long and, like the curtains of the courtyard, five cubitsh high,
19 with four posts and four bronze bases. Their hooks and bands were silver, and their tops were overlaid with silver.
20 All the tent pegs of the tabernacle and of the surrounding courtyard were bronze.

The Materials Used

21 These are the amounts of the materials used for the tabernacle, the tabernacle of the covenant law, which were recorded at Moses’ command by the Levites under the direction of Ithamar son of Aaron, the priest.
